In depth

Verdict

JUST BREATHE made a winning debut over C&D before going close on her first start in a handicap. That was back in January but she won't have to improve much on those first two efforts to get the better of these. It was Belinsky's turn at Kempton in September and he should be thereabouts again but both Trending and Miss Polly Plum recorded their latest wins over the minimum trip. Catalinas Diamond won at Lingfield over 7f in June, though Lastkingofscotland, Athwaab and Kempton winner Auntie Mabel look bigger threats.
